Colorado Springs, L 2-7: Not much offensively last night, though Alvin Colina hit his third homer of the season. Marc Kaiser allowed four runs in 4 1/3 innings and walked four. Mike Esposito came in for the last four innings and allowed three runs.

Tulsa: No game scheduled.

Modesto, W 9-4: Eric Young Jr. hit his first homer of the season (in the fifth inning) and scored the go-ahead run in the five-run eighth after he started the inning with a single. Chris Nelson had the double that drove Young in that inning, his only hit of the night. Cole Garner had two hits and his RBI crossed the plate on a double.

Xavier Cedeno went 6 2/3 innings and allowed all four runs, two on a homer in the second inning. Pedro Strop had trouble finding the strike zone last night as he walked four batters in two innings, but he allowed no hits.

Asheville, W 15-3: The Tourists' bats came alive tonight with a five-run first inning, a four-run fourth, a three-run fifth, a two-run seventh and a one-run eighth. Mike Paulk had a two-run triple in the first, Michael McKenry drove in Paulk and Jay Cox had a two-run homer before the inning came to a close. Anthony Jackson had a RBI triple in the fourth and scored on the same play after an error by the shortstop; he had four RBI on the night. Geoff Strickland immediately followed with an inside-the-park homer and Hector Gomez had his seventh homer, a solo shot, right after Strickland's. Jay Cox also had a triple, his second on the season, and it scored Michael McKenry in the fifth. Daniel Mayora had four hits and Spence Nagy had three, but was the only Tourist to not drive in a run last night.

Josh Sullivan lasted only 3 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on two hits. He walked and struck out three. Zach Simons came in for the next 3 1/3 innings and gave up one hit. He also struck out four. Will Harris came in for two innings and struck out two.
